Since we couldn't make it to Maine this weekend due to the amount of homework for a class I'm taking, I decided to make one of hubby's favorite meals - a boiled dinner! I had a corned beef in the freezer so it was easy. However I didn't have all the veggies as you can see in the the photo above. So hubby went to the market for me on a holiday - he's such a good guy! When he came home I surprised him with a beautiful table setting. I used his mom's wheat dishes, I just love them (I'm a self-professed dishaholic), and for some reason I enjoy using them in the Autumn! This was a special treat because I haven't used them for about three years!
Let's see what we have around the house to make a lovely
centerpiece for the kitchen table. The tray acted like a
mirror and the votive's reflected beautifully, it wasn't
planned - it was a "happy accident." Can you keep a secret?
I purchased all of these items at half-off at various stores
over the past several years - I love a nice bargain!
Here are my mother-in-law's dishes that she got in the
1960's. My husband just told me that they are supermarket
dishes! Every week she would add to her collection, I must
have a service for 10, with all the serving pieces! Love 'em!
Let's add some wine glasses, I love the mix
of the vintage with the new - don't you?
Honey, dinner's ready! Purple cabbage, Yukon gold potato,
turnip, sweet onion, carrot & corned beef - yum!
